Greetings guardians! I wanted to share with you something funny I figured out about the Cadence and Clarion Sparrow horns.
To refresh your memory, here are the sounds the Cadence and Clarion horns make, respectively: https://www.mediafire.com/download/6n91581pxstqb29 Upon hearing these horns for the first time at the Eververse kiosk, I thought they sounded familiar, especially when played one after another. I couldn’t figure out where I’d heard them before so I went to bed. The next day I played the Taken King theme (titled Regicide) and it dawned on me where I’d heard the horns before.
Again to refresh your memory, here is the Taken King Theme:
Play the first 12 seconds.

This is just the Cadence and Clarion horns thrown in some audio editing software, transposed down 3 semitones, and slowed down about 54%. (Technically that’s actually up 9 semitones on the clarion, but it uses the same notes in music going down 3 as it does up 9.)
It sounds like whoever made them really wanted us to charge into battle Oryx blaring them!
